Firefox connectivity issue

Q: Firefox connectivity issue

I have Firefox 3.0.5 installed on an XP based system. It works fine when it is connected, but that is the problem. Every time I try to open it I get an error messege. It says "Proxy Server Refused Connection". I can go into tools/options/network/settings and it always shows "Manual proxy configuration". If I change it to "No proxy" or "Auto detect" and click through the OKs, it works fine, but when I close it down it reverts back to "Manual" the next time I start it up.
How do I get it to stay?

Preferred Solution: Firefox connectivity issue

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've been having problems connecting to FF and IE after installing several Windows updates. On Firefox I can only connect to my university email page, every other webpage is either blank or gives the "connection to the server was reset while the page was loading" error. IE states that it cannot display the webpage and flashes ieframe.dll error in the bottom left corner when loading up. Diagnostics check found no problems and all applications that need Internet connectivity, such as AIM, work perfectly fine. I've tried doing a system restore to the settings before the update, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, turning off firewalls, clearing cookies/temp internet files/cache, disabling Phishing filter in IE, disabling IPV6, etc. and nothing seems to really work. After clearing data IE did seem to work briefly last night, but stopped working this morning. Any suggestions on what else I can try? Thank you.

A:Firefox 3.0.5 Connectivity Issue

Well the same this just happened to me about 2 hours ago when I updated Firefox and none of the solutions posted on this website worked for me. (As I was having a major panic attack) I tried restoring my computer to yesterday's settings, go to

Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore->Next->**Select a Restore Point [Click on the day before you updated Mozilla Firefox]->Click Next->Click Restore and it will automatically restart your computer do not press anything else. It may take a couple of minutes.

Restoring your computer is like going back in time so to speak. Your computer will be in the exact same state as it was the date in which you choose. Don't worry THIS CAN BE UNDONE. Just go back to the same place and click undo last System Restore (though you shouldn't find any need to). This method has worked for me several times as a quick-fix for times when my computer has crashed or I've downloaded things that have messed up my computer.
Hope this helps!

Does anyone have information on when a security update will be available for the issue?
On 10/18/17 MS Article Stated: "Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release of the security patch. This is expected to be available in another 2-3 weeks or earlier."

For Issue:
JET provider is no longer able to connect after the October update. This update (released October 10<sup>th</sup>, 2017) includes a security update release that inadvertently affects the JET provider. The update was kb4041678 and included in
the patch kb4041681.  These patches affected the Operating System, which adversely has an issue with the following technologies: Microsoft Windows Search Component, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Internet Explorer, Windows
kernel, Windows Wireless Networking, Microsoft JET Database Engine, and the Windows SMB Server. It is important to note that the changes were not to these technologies themselves.

Opps, maybe not so unique since I just noticed an ENTIRE forum for browsers...perhaps moving this is appropriate...if so, please do. I will be reading up in there.

Its interesting because I can't find any mention of it anywhere on this site. Specifically browser connectivity is lost after a little while (guessing 7 minutes, though it may be a number of browser pages displayed trigger i went 3 hrs today) after I start browsing. If I don't start a browser, the death clock doesn't begin until I start browsing. Now, at the same time, all shares, the other machines on the network, work fine. Also if I am playing an online game, I will not have any issues. Just IE and firefox can't display pages and other programs (like updates of AVG) are soon to follow.

***Important to note this is new, the network was fine for over a week before this started a couple days ago.

I notice, when it works, net info states Homegroup - ready to connect (I am using a workgroup to connect to other machines) but last night, during a browser outage it said it was connected. I notice now it calls my workgroup a homegroup (I think is used to say workgroup)

(This problem may have started around when I tried to synchronise a folder to "always available offline", but there are other things that were done in that period of time unfortuately, all have since been undone.

os:vista ultimate x64 w/ all updates.

my firefox & IE have suddenly stopped working (blank page; "website found; waiting for reply" on IE and "waiting for xxxxx.com" on firefox) . literally. one minute they were working, the next minute they weren't. i didn't do anything special in between. not even a reboot.

now, it's only IE and firefox; messenger still works and so do torrents.
i can even ping yahoo.com from cmd.

- i've tried rebooting, no help.
- I've tried reinstalling firefox, no help.
- i've tried switching from wired connection to wireless; no help
- i've tried disabling firewall; no help.
- i've run anti-virus (nod32) and anti-malware; no help
- It's not the router or ISP, because my laptop works fine.

and finally, this problem happened to me about 4 weeks ago; i was unable to find a solution, so i reformated and reinstalled vista! now, it's happened again. grrrrr...


more info. i tried a system restore back to when i know my pc was working fine. and the problem hasn't gone away.

also, new piece of info. i can connect to (router's web-config) through firefox and IE. So that removes the possibility of something blocking port 80 on my PC.

tried to telnet google.co.uk 80. & that was no go.

Ok so im at uni- a month ago my internet got cut off because i had a virus.. but we got that sorted and they've switched it back on but ive still got a problem-

When using firefox or internet explorer after about an hour the browsers will both just stop loading webpages - yet the internet is still connected and i can talk to people over skype, if i then close firefox and try to load it up again it says "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system" And to make myself be able to view webpages again i have to restart my computer about every hour that i'm on it. I just phoned IT support and all they told me was to uninstall my browsers and reinstall them.. but this didnt work and i still have the problem, can anyone help?

I've had a strange problem for a few months. It wasn't a big deal until my secondary laptop began having problems and I resorted to using this slower laptop which hasn't been used much the last 2-3 years.

Basically, if I boot up my laptop, connect wirelessly or hard-wired, my internet connection is working fine and Firefox works well. My connection doesn't drop and my downloads aren't interrupted or broken or slowed. But, the moment I restart Firefox (with an add-on), the connection is dropped and I cannot reconnect unless I reboot my laptop. If I close FF then open it, it's the same result. Due to this odd issue, I've resorted to leaving Firefox open for many hours, sometimes more than a day or I reboot my laptop.

If I leave Firefox open, disconnect from the internet then put my laptop to sleep then wake it up 8+ hours later, so long as Firefox is open from the previous day, I can connect wirelessly or wired and it works fine. This has become my workaround. It is an annoyance to be sure but it also forces me to leave only one tab or two open, both of which I set to google so I can just use the back button. Otherwise, the ram hog aka Firefox, will take up too many resources. I download heavily, primarily from youtube and normally, when I don't need the browser to be open to initiate downloading, it's closed. Now, I have to be careful with my 1GB ram laptop because I can't run more than 2-3 heavier applications.

It also affects Chrome, a browser I don't care to use. I have... Read more

A:Connectivity until Firefox is restarted

Will the other Laptop run long enough to copy the Firefox profile onto USB? If you partition setup and Firefox versions are the same it may be worth copying the profile over after first backing up the profile of the Firefox with the issue. If there is some setting causing the problem copying the "good" profile into the location of the bad one may fix it.

Or you could try a Firefox Nightly to see if the quirk got fixed. It will install to its own folder and pick up your settings and AddOns without overwriting the old ones. This option is probably easier and safer.

I'm running Windows XP and like to use Mozilla Firefox browser, but it will not play videos on news sites most of the time. I can see the videos in Internet Explorer, but not Firefox. I've tried the tips given for this, but think it has to do with connectivity not being recognized. I've gone to the connectivity link, but can't seem to get it to work. Any ideas?

I also have a XP and use Firefox. I had a similar problem with hearing audio streams. It was because I had pop-ups blocked (ocassionally pop-ups are useful). Make sure that Firefox is not blocking the pop-up window containing the video.

I have used firefox since it was called Firebird. As you may know from this I love this browser.

1. I updated to 7 recently and thought nothing of it.
2. I can now no longer OPEN more than one tab at a time without partial loss of page loading in the proceeding tab and etc etc. It simply stops loading tabs. Eventually, and SOMETIMES not at all, it loads the tabs. Sometimes even the first won't load.
3. Chrome opens everything instantly and without question.
4.1 I removed all my plugins and retried. I tried firefox safe mode. Same result.
4.2 I USED REVO UNINSTALLER and FIREFOX'S uninstaller to remove it today.
4.3 I reinstalled a clean copy of 7 and the addons (all compatible)

5. Browser is still not loading anything. I am using chrome to type this.

Any ideas?

A:Firefox 7 update causes loss of multiple tab connectivity

That's very odd. I'm using firefox verson 7.0.1 currently, and everything's running flawlessly.

I would suggest uninstalling firefox and running ccleaner to clean out your registry. Or maybe look here and download an older version of firefox to see if it works. If it still doesn't, then it's not the update, most likely a software issue with your particular computer. If it does work, however, try updating it to 7.0.1 using firefox update. It should work then.

Other than that, I can't think of anything.

I am currently trouble shooting a network problem for a medium size company, aprox 250 users. The issue is as follows:
A connectivity problem occurs on random clients which leaves them with an ip address received from DHCP server but the client only has connectivity with its own vlan. (DHCP server on different VLAN) The switch has ip helper set up so the communication to get an ip address is being done via the switch and on to the DHCP server.(The primary function of IP helper) The client can't ping anything outside its own VLAN.
Our only work around is to assign a static DHCP ip address on the DHCP server using the MAC address of the client. Issue an ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew on the affected client to get the assigned static DHCP address and full connectivity is restored.
There is a mix of Cisco and 3com switches, mostly Cisco with a Cisco 3750 multi layer switch at the heart of the network.
I have analysed the configuration of the devices and everything looks good.
I know its hard to diagnose from this brief description but any similar problems experienced and solutions discovered are appreciated.

Hi, Can anyone please help, I have a problem on my son's computer. we have lost access to the internet I just keep getting a message stating "limited or no connectivity" I have tried resetting the network wizard in Windows XP but to no avail, I have tried the repair connection facility but that says " unable to set IP address" We connect through a D link wireless router. my computer down stairs connects fine.
I don't know if this is connected to the problem but when I boot up the computer I get a message stating that Rundll C:\PROGRAM~1\NEWDOT~\NEWDOT~1.DLL is missing or cannot be loaded has that caused the problem?
Thanks in anticipation.

A:No connectivity issue

You have spyware

NEWDOT is spyware that hijacks your web browser and host file. You need to remove it. First you need to remove this key from the registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run\new.net startup
After you have deleted this key you need to reboot your system. Then run msconfig and go to startup and stop these process
(may or may not exist):
Then you will need to do a file search for newdot(here is an example list)
You will have to unregister each of then and then delete them. If you don't know how go to this site http://articles.networktechs.com/111-p1.php
Then remove the folder %program_files%\newdotnet
And to finish it up run a regcleaner if you don't have one here is a link to one
Hope this helps.

how do you have everything configured?

Can you see the wireless router from your laptop?

Ideal setup is to have the "uplink" port (labeled as WAN or Internet" from your wireless router going to one of the LAN (or "Ethernet") ports on the DSL modem.

My laptop which i have recently installed a fresh xp copy on, is having internet connectivity issues. there is only 1 driver that works for the wireless lan and 1 driver for the wire lan that but that wont work for some reason but im not concerned as long as the wifi works on it. the issue is that every 2-5 mins the wireless disconnects, and reconnects taking anywhere from 1 min - several mins to aquire ip address. i could understand if it was clear across my home away from the wireless router, but its stationed right next to the router, so there should be no interferrance problems. i use halfdone's unknown devices driver informer and that tells me that the proper drivers are all installed on my laptop and that i dont need anything else. device manager confirms. i dont understand why my wired internet wont work if it has the proper drivers, and i dont understand why the wifi cuts out like it does. would you assume that its the router ( though its brand new and doesnt cut on my other wifi systems ) or the computer?

Hey all,

I'm finally posting here after having read around on the site before and gotten good info.

I set up a wireless home network between two computers (a laptop and a tablet) a few months ago. The laptop is the "base" computer and the table has a wireless receiver; the router is a DLink 524.

I never had any connectivity issues (internet) until last week on the laptop when my free version of Zonealarm started acting screwy and not displaying any info when I would open the program up. I updated the version, and since then cannot use the internet while Zonealarm is running. I'm confused, though, because the tablet has Zonealarm and has no problems accessing the internet at all. DLink tech support tells me that the problem is in the configuration of Zonealarm, and that I should contact them, but I'm running the freebie version and so don't anticipate getting much help there.

Is this an issue of ports (opening/forwarding)? If so, I have no experience in that and would appreciate if someone could take a second to let me know what they think should be done. I'm willing to just scrap Zonealarm and try something that works better with the router if need be, but I'm willing to bet someone who knows what they're doing could fix this easily, and that the problem is with me.

Thanks so much,


A:Odd connectivity issue

Go into the router and turn off the blocking of computers not running ZA. I'm not sure if this is the problem but I do know that I've seen such as problem in DLink routers before because some models now have a feature(some added with firmware update) which will allow you to configure the router with ZA so they don't interfere with eachother, it aslo has a feature which will let you block computers not running ZA so that you don't have unprotected machines on the network. While this is a good idea in theory, it also causes problems for people who don't know it is there.

BTW, the setup you mention where one laptop is "base" as you call it, is incorrect. When using a router to share your internet, the router itself is the server and all computers are the clients. This misconception causes a lot of confusion and sometimes makes it difficult to diagnose a problem when you call one machine a "base" or "server" when it is not.

Hope someone out there has come across this... Bellsouth (DSL) using a Westel Modem directly connected to the Computer (ethernet), no switch, hubs, etc.... All connected to a UPS which I turn off nightly. When you first turn it all on, cannot connect to Internet, E-mail, etc... The DSL Modem shows steady power light, steady sync light and ethernet light flickers as it is working, but nada... disabled Firewall (Zone alarm) but nothing. Cannot ping or get to the outside. Most of the time, after a reboot it will then work as it should. No viruses on the computer, all updates are done (Windows 2000 Pro, SP4, IE6 with all updates, etc). It is becoming frustrating to say the least, and takes nearly as long as my dial up connection did just to get online... I contacted Bellsouth who tries to claim it is a hardware issue which I do not agree with... I changed the DSL modem to it is always on, independent of the computer and that didnot help... Next I am going to try a different Ethernet card... All dsl modem updates are done as well... Has anyone else had this problem? Please advise.. thanks

Hello all,

I am new here but hoping still that someone might have the answer to an ongoing issue within our network.

I am dealing with a large network (large in the physical size not necessarily how many PCs connected). There are 4 different buildings that connect with a fiber optical connection. Each building has it's own internet source. I deal with two of these buildings. The connection runs underground. When I link our two buildings, the networked PCs communicate but the internet connection is lost.

I am not sure if the other buildings have these connection issues but I've noticed that at one end it looks like an adapter is connecting the fiber optical possible to a cat5 looking jack. Is it possible that that's the issue?

Have you heard of this before. I happens to be a POS system that we need working between the two buildings. So apart from one or two office computers on the network that needs internet we need it for processing credit cards as well.

Any help will do. Sorry if I wasn't all that specific or clear... I'm still new at this stuff.

I've recently (in the past few weeks) been having trouble with Internet Explorer, version 7.0.5730.11. When I first open the program, the page is blank, and the status bar (bottom of the IE window) briefly flashes "Detecting proxy settings" and then sits at "Connecting to site" for several minutes before displaying the typical "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" screen.

In dealing with the problem, I've found that whenever I get the "Connecting to site" message in the status bar, I immediately close IE, then reopen it. Sometimes the first time I do this results in Google (homepage) loading, but most of the time I must repeat this proces several times (up to about 10) before IE loads Google.

When already working properly, I've noticed that IE has no problems opening links in new windows or tabs. Does anyone have an idea of what could be causing this problem?

Relevant Information:

Windows XP Service Pack 3
IE version 7.0.5730.11

Please let me know if additional information is required, and I will do my best to provide it. Thanks for reading.

Good morning everyone,

slowly but steadily I am nearing the edge of sanity. I am not overly technically gifted and, to my dismay, certain members of the WoTC support staff aren't, either. I'm not sure I actually expect a solution as much as I hope for an explanation of an issue that's presented itself to me.

The issue is as follows: One particular application (namely Magic the Gathering Arena (yes, I am aware that there's a game subforum, but this really is a networking issue - promise!)) refuses to stay connected to the host for any amount of time. In these trying times (being a teacher and confined to my home desk due to Corona) I spend way too much time on online games, none of which are giving me any sort of grief. I'm on a gigabit fiber connection that's, similarly, never acted up on me before. But for some reason I have not been able to maintain a connection to the MtGA host for longer than about 2 minutes in the past 3 days (never had an issue with the game before). I contacted their support who, as they usually do, presented me with a list of off-the-shelf solutions. Suffice it to say, none of them worked, except for the last one.

I asked this in web/email but no one wants to help me...

I play C&C Renegade (on WOL) religiously. About 2-3 weeks ago, my computer got virused and i had to reset a bunch of things, and i think something messed up my 'net connection settings or something, because since then Renegade has been disconnecting randomly (always at the good times, too).

to further verify, my AOL/MSN (well ok, i use trillian) has been experiencing these disconnects too:

Hi Everyone.
I have a Netgear JFS516 switch which is directly connected to the D-link DES-3026 switch.The problem is up-link lED on netgear switch keeps blinking for 1 minute and then goes off, resulting no network connectivity on the part of Netgear JFS516 switch.

These 2 switches connected with straight cable and I crimped the cable on both side but the problem still persists.

Did you test the cable with a cable tester? Sounds like a cable issue or perhaps a bad switch. Did you take the switch close to the other switch and connect it with a short patch cable as a test?

I have just bought a new router and am trying to connect it. I did the basic set up with an install disc to the problem is that when I connect to the Wireless network it only gives me limited access to the internet for instance I am able to use Skype and other applications that rely on internet connection, but when it comes to web browsers (both Mozilla & Safari) it shows the url section loading but only ever makes it mid way (the page always stays blank) . I also have access to the router settings using I cloned my MAC address on the router settings as that was prior advice.

If anyone could help it would be amazing..

router settings also say that its connected

Hi all.

Having surveyed numerous similar posts I am at a loss as to how to resolve this issue, hence posting my specifics...all help greatly appreciated.

I am running Vista Home premium, IE8, Firefox 3.5.3, AVG free and Zonealarm. On starting the PC there is no problem connecting to the internet through either browser or updating email (Windows Mail).


Loss of internet connection via IE and/or Firefox whilst Mail can still send/receive. I have tried clearing the cache etc but the only thing that works is re-booting the laptop (Dell XPS 1330).

I mainly browse with IE but downloaded Firefox in case IE was the problem. One or the other will lose connection first then the other will follow.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.



A:Loss of internet connectivity with IE and Firefox whilst mail can still update

Could you provide details of how you connect to the internet?

ISP and connection details
Are you connected with wires or wireless?
When did the problem first occur, had you made any changes to your system prior to noticing the issue?

The title must seem very vague, and sorry if it is.

I have been trying to troubleshoot this all week. When I had initially installed Windows 7 everything went fine with no problems. On the get go, a generic Broadcom driver was installed on my wlan nic, considering the chipset. But this worked fine, through my wrt150n router I was getting at least 20mbps on multiple speed tests.

Also, generic drivers for sound were installed (crackle pop). I fixed that by installing the official vista drivers from creative. That worked excellent, but there were many features missing, such as the ability to switch my flexijack from line-in to mic.

I installed a driver from the creative forums by daniel_k, and every feature on my sound card magically worked. However, my internet connection completely broke. And by broke, I mean mysteriously vanished. My NIC would still see and connect to my wireless LAN, and the network and sharing center was reporting local and internet. But nothing on firefox, IE8, or even AIM/MSN.

Logically, I disabled the windows firewall first for both public and private networks. No luck. Restarted, and still no luck. I uninstalled my NOD32 antivirus, restarted, and still no luck. I reinstalled the broadcom driver for my wlan NIC, and no luck. I installed the linksys-branded drivers for my NIC, and still nothing. Keep in mind that I always get "local and internet" on my wlan network in the network and sharing center. Frustrated, I slowly uninst... Read more

A:wmp300n connectivity issue

Seems like this issue may be solved. I never considered a hardware issue, as it would have seemed highly unlikely because it happened so soon after installing win7 beta.

The connection to the antenna is a bit iffy. As I run a speed test and play with the wire into the antenna, it jumps up and down. This seems to be a direct relation. I'm RMAing the NIC to linksys, and I will update everyone with the results later.

Please don't mark this as solved just yet, though.

Last week I installed a new Lexmark wireless printer and now everytime a computer restarts I lose my internet connection and get this mesage:
LIMITED OR NO CONNECTIVITY and my IP address goes to 169
I was told by Comcast to unplug and then replug the modem and router to get the correct IP address
and it works but then each time a computer restarts we lose the connection again and I have to unplug
the modem and router again.
I have uninstalled the printer and gone back to my old one but the issue still persists.
How can I fix this?

Hello Community.  I am truly hoping you can help me as I know the call in support can't. In December I bought a Y-50, 16gb, i7-4710, 8.1, 64 bit, GTX860M, 512SSD, no hard disk.  I use a FIOS 50up/50down connection. I have wanted to post many times about just how awesome this computer is.  It runs ridiculously quick compared to what I'm use to. I start quickbooks and it literally just starts... no waiting for 1 min.  Heck, I boot the computer and I can be online in 15 seconds.  Games are crazy fast too...  Technology rocks. Symptoms: Anyway, I'm having a frustrating issue.  My internet connection "seems" to stop while I'm surfing the web occasionaly and it's typically when no one else is home with me and no devices other than my laptop are online.  Chrome or IE will not connect to anything and even my scanner software reports that it's no longer connected.  The other crazy thing is the wireless bars remain high and the wireless never says it's disconnected. It happened once two weeks ago.  And for the past 3 days has been happening at least 2x per day.  The only way to fix this is to restart the computer--which is just not practical as I have to save everything and reopen etc... I've installed no out of the ordinary programs: Office, Quickbooks, Guild Wars 2, Google DriveI've not let windows update any drivers--only updates and drivers are not allowed to be installed through update. I imm...

Hey guys,

I have an issue specific to my USB 3.0 ports, and its interaction with my external HDD(E-HDD). Whenever I plug in my USB 3.0 capable E-HDD, the computer recognises the drive for a few seconds and then disconnects. This keeps happening while the the E-HDD is still plugged into the port, so it just keeps connecting and then disconnecting. There's hardly enough time to access the drive. The problem seems to be non-existent when I plug the device into the USB 2.0 port. My father has a similar E-HDD and has similar issues with this PC. I've looked high and low on the web for solutions. The ports are part of the motherboard and their drivers I assume come along with the Intel chipset drivers, which I updated but to no avail. I tried adjusting my power options; I disabled, 'USB selective suspend setting' which was also unsuccessful. I'm using an ASUS B-85 plus motherboard and my E-HDD is a WD My Passport 500GB. This E-HDD is accessible on my laptop via its 3.0 port. I think it is safe to say that the E-HDD is not the issue but rather the ports on the computer.

Please help!

Hello, this is my first post on this particular forum, I am trying to find some help to get the internet running on my Windows Vista PC.

I have a 2WIRE950 router and a Belkin USB adapter that I just installed. I've installed one of these Belkin adapters before and had the same problem I just can't recall how I fixed it last time. Under "Network and Sharing Center" it simply says "Unidentified Network (Private Network) (I have to change it back to private from public every time I change ANYTHING), Access: Limited Connectivity, Connection: Wireless Network Connection (2WIRE950)." I checked my IP configuration and under autoconfiguration IPv4 address starts 169.254 which I have read is a problem, but I do not know how to fix it. My IPv6 address is a mixture of letters and numbers and from what I've read so far doesn't really matter but if you need it I'll post it.

I've tried re-booting everything including my PC, router, re-installing my adapter, etc. I used to have an ethernet cable I could just plug in and screw the wireless problems but it was damaged and I don't have another cable long enough to run into my room and I cant move the router/modem out of my father's room so it seems my only choice is to get a wireless connection.

Any ideas or assistance would be greatly appreciated. If you need anymore information please let me know. I'm using a friend's PC to check for replies for now. Thank you in advanc... Read more
